BikeGuard installed along A379 in Devon

Date: 12/02/2009

BikeGuard A379 Sandygate
“In recent years there had been a number of serious collisions along this particular section of the A379. Motorcyclists were losing control on the long, tight curvature of the bend which links the M5 and Exeter. Detailed examination of the circumstances of the collisions showed that the riders were mainly locals who knew the road and were familiar with the layout. For this reason it was considered that additional warning signs or decreased speed limits would be inappropriate and ineffectual and that a proven secondary safety measure should be provided.  BikeGuard has been introduced to this site with the aim of reducing the severity of injuries sustained by motorcycle riders who may lose control at this specific location. Devon County Council, as a Beacon Authority for Road Safety, is always looking to install innovative road safety measures to further reduce the number and severity of collisions on the roads.”

Tim Hipwell, Collision Investigation Officer, Devon County Council
